Mark 3:1-6

Jesus comes into conflict with the Pharisees again by acting on his compassion for the man and fulfilling his role as the lord of the sabbath. There is no doubt that the obstinance of the Pharisees has provoked Jesus’ anger. They cannot even respond to his question about choosing to do good.

Perhaps there were some in the crowd who heard what you were asking but did not have the courage to respond and maybe even stay with you. I pray for that courage.
